E100-74: Acts 8:26 - 8:40: Philip preaches Isaiah




There are a couple of things to notice here:

* firstly how Luke stresses the role of the Holy Spirit (or rather, God, since at the start it is "an angel of the Lord")
* it may have been a desert/wilderness road but like Abraham in Gen 12 "he got up and went" our response to such promptings is often more cautious, even at times Jonah-like
* the Ethiopian official was prepared (been to temple, so God-fearer, reading Scripture - measure of his importance he had a copy)
* Isaiah again!


Bible Jesus Read, The

Philip Yancey. Zondervan 2002, Paperback, 240 pages, $1.94

Like Yancey's friend (see Reading prophets for pleasure and profit) he recognised what he was reading was difficult.

"Do you understand?" "How can I, unless someone guides me?"

The passage he was reading came from Is 53:7-8. Philip started with this scripture, and proclaimed to him the good news about Jesus. Christianity fits with, but goes beyond - fully fills - the Scripture that preceded it.
